Please help :(

I'm 15 and when I go back to school I don't want my mom to do my hair anymore, and my aunt said if I can't take care of my hair by the time school comes around, she's going to perm my hair
these are all the things I tried this and last summer:
-Terry's method w/v05 moisture milks cond. as a rinsing conditioner, and tresemme naturals nourishing conditioner as a leave in
-Terry's method w/V05 and kc knot today
-KCCC
-Organic Root Stimulator olive oil cream, and olive oil hair lotion
-Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling gel
-1/2 cup of evoo (twice) but my hair was just oily
2 egg yolks and about 1 tbsp of evoo, but my hair was still dry and felt rough
-1 egg yolk, about less than 1/3 cup of honey (we were running out), and less than 1/3 cup of evoo, but my hair was still dryy and felt even more rough

they were all done in seperate weeks and none worked I always got the SAME result, dry, frizzy, rough, undefined curls...it's driving me crazy!!!
my hair reaches a little lower than my shoulder when it's straightened, and I think my hair is about 3c/4a
now I'm thinking about trying Miss Jessie's products, but I want to see what's said here before I do
please keep in mind I don't have a job and a lot of my parents money is going down the drain :/
Oh no! Just say no to creamy crack, auntie!

Since your hair feels rough after the treatments you've tried, it sounds like your hair might be protein sensitive. Have you been able to figure out your hair texture and porosity? If not, it might help to look at some info at Live Curly Live Free (Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics) to see what would work for you.

Otherwise, we'll get the NC Mob to show up and tie your aunt down.

Maybe your hair is high porosity? My hair is, and those methods you listed would NEVER work on me. I need a creamy leave in, and a heavy oil/butter.

How does your hair usually absorb prodcts and water?


If you are high porosity, try Shea moisture curl and style milk (I put it on wet hair) and then seal w/ a butter. I'm in live w/ Nubian heritage mango butter, but regular old Shea butter will work. Plus it's cheaper and easier to find.

That's all I got. The pros will be in here shortly lol.

@voluptucurl: thanks for the website!! I think my hair is medium texture and definately high porosity

@keenylicious: yeah it is high porosity, and when I use products my hair drys as if it was only water in my hair, but the KCCC ,made my hair extremely dry, it was crunchy and frizzy and it looked very bad....but I'll try the things you recommended and see how it goes....thank you!! (btw, do you know where I can get shea butter? I live in south florida and I can't buy online)

Out of curiousity why are you doing so many protein treatments. I only do pts when my hair feels mushy and overconditioned which isn't that often. PTs make your hair hard which is why you should always follow up with a deep moisturizing treatment. Maybe you should skip the egg, add honey and EVOO to you conditioner. If you have a hooded hooded dryer you could dc a plastic cap under the heat. If you don't you can use your body heat.After you rinse it out, you could try a twist out with the products you like. I prefer leave in, oil, and gel.
